I was able to get two bolts out with a breaker bar and the right 10mm hex socket. The other two stripped the head out so we welded the hex socket to the bolt head that worked for one. The other one blew out the back of the socket, so a 3/4 wrench fit nicely over it....

We did have to use about a 4-5ft breaker bar. Some tools must be sacrificed for this job apparently. Heat from the welds did the most good to free it up.
I have had success welding a nut over the damaged bolt, but I have not tried that on this particular application.

Yah, I was going to use an autozone wrench then thought it might break that one in a million pieces... Tools are an ongoing investment :shrug:

Best way I have found.... Worked many times. Use a grinder. Grind the head to somehwat of a hex head, this does not have to be exact at all. Then use this tool. Has worked every time.

i used a cobalt drill bit, worked like a charm................ for the first bolt. the part about the sharpening is no joke, too dull to get very far in the second bolt. im going tomorrow to get it sharpened since i dont have a bench grinder, and probably buy a backup bit just in case.
